Biennial Open Photo Exhibition

February 14, 2017 - March 31, 2017

The Taube Museum of Art Main Gallery is featuring the Biennial Photography Exhibition, February 14 - March 30, 2017. This exhibition was open to all Minot and surrounding photographers, professional and nonprofessional alike. To submit works in this exhibition, photographers must be 18 years of age, the photos taken within the last three years, and with no limit regarding subject matter. Seven entries were selected for the following awards: Best of Show, Best Black & White, Best Color, Taube Museum of Art Choice, and Three Honorable Mention’s by Mandi Carroll of Mandi Carroll Photography. There will also be a People’s Choice Award given at the close of the show, with the public invited to vote on their favorite.

Based on the participation in the 2015 exhibition, it was decided to make the exhibition a biennial. The exhibition is a chance for emerging photographers as well as professional photographers to display their work in front of the viewing public. This Biennial Photography Exhibition includes the following photographers, in alphabetical order: Amadis Amaya, Jerry Bakke, Miranda Brezden, Leticia Correa, Richard Debertin, Joel Dennis, Byron Fichter, Ruth Ganes, John K. Geyerman, Linda Hager, Lacey Holmen, Erich Linser, Gabrielle Nelson, Jake Nixon, Betty Nordstrom, Nika Ostby, Jill Roloff, Dan Smith, Ryan Stander, and Allen Westereng.

Lower Gallery

The Fabricated Prairie

Sue Huitt

February 14, 2017 - March 31, 2017

The Lower Gallery features, Illinois based, but Taube member artist, Sue Huitt’s fiber art, during the same time frame. Her exhibition The Fabricated Prairie features thirteen wall hangings and six fabric bowls depicting the American prairie. Huitt’s goal is to create stories about the history, literature, and natural history of the prairie in small intimate glimpses of the flowers, insects, birds, and plant life. Her themes include fossil pollen research, prairie fragmentation, the role of fire, and prairie restoration. Each panel peeks into the habits of the birds, insects, and flowers through the seasons, and several panels are visual interpretations of scientific research. Huitt is unable to travel to North Dakota for the exhibition reception, but this pattern-on-pattern and color-on-color feast for the eyes should not be missed.

 

Public Reception

A public reception will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 23rd, with a number of works available for purchase. It is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. Mandi Carroll will give a short presentation regarding the award selections.
Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.

These exhibitions are made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
